In Hebrews 11:30, the Israelites marched around the wall for seven days believing God that the wall would fall to the ground. In spite of how surreal it seemed, the Israelites obeyed God and the wall came crashing down after the seventh day. If they would have stopped believing, the walls would have never fallen. The Israelites had to remain steadfast in doing what God had told them to do. If you stop obeying God, if you stop believing that all things are possible, if you stop having faith in the power God has placed on the inside of you, you will never achieve your dream. To the natural it may seem crazy, but when God tells you to do something, just do it. (Joshua 6:3-13). Every dream I pursued, there was a battle before it came to pass. I didn’t allow the turmoil going on around me stop me from pursuing my dream.
Don’t get frustrated when the pieces don’t fit, you have to keep trying until it comes together. They will come together in the perfect circumstances and in the perfect season. When I began to see the center, God began to bring the vision to pass. Victory is a mindset. You have to set your mind to do it. When you have a dream, you have to pursue your dream. Without the Word of God, you will not be able to see your dream come to pass.
You cannot be double-minded or fearful when trying to obtain something from God. “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed” (James 1:6). You have to have one mind, the mind of Christ and be confident in what you are asking God to do. Do not turn from your dream. If you draw back, God has no pleasure in you. Faith without works is dead. Continue believing and pressing toward your goal in assurance that God is able and He will (James 2:17-18, 26).
